1837 Kenyon/Wilcox Land Indenture
Wayne County, NY
This indenture is one of a group of documents transcribed and contributed by researcher Ron Reid!
"What I am trying to do is find a solid connection between Friend Kenyon and a supposed son
by the name of Jonas Kenyon. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence but I am still
searching for that irrefutible link. Therefore I am working from Friend Kenyon forward and
Jonas Kenyon backwards. I will probably be getting more into the Garlock/Garlach line because
we know Friend Kenyon married a Garlock and came from Herkimer to Wayne with the Garlock bunch
in the 1830's."
